Parent & Family Involvement
The staff and administration of Chambersburg Area School District believe that all students can learn; therefore, we accept the challenge to teach all students so they may attain their maximum educational potential. It is in this spirit that we would like to align ourselves as full partners with the parents of our students. It is the purpose of both CASD faculty and the parents of our school to provide our students with an excellent education that maintains the highest academic standards. We want to educate all students to live and work with all people, to think critically, to function in the world in which they live through the use of technology and appreciation of the arts, to possess positive character traits, and to value a democratic society in which they become responsible, productive citizens. Working together, all students will achieve their highest potential.

Parent Advisory Council
We are all partners in public education and have a vested interest in providing an education of superior value for our students. We would like to invite you to join the representatives of the Parent Advisory Council as we work to effect positive changes in our schools. It is our hope that together we can advise, evaluate, collaborate, and propose solutions that will benefit our schools, our students, and, as a result, our community. Working closely with administrators, educators, and local leadership, your involvement can only strengthen our position of partnership and advocacy and will ensure that we have an educational system that is accountable and of the highest quality for every child.
